    Medium: Oil on wood Signed: Yes Artist: Alberto Pasini Title: Unknown (Fishing Port) Creation Date: Circa 1864 Measurements: Height: 17.75, Width: 22.75, Depth: 1.5 inch Broad Media: Painting


    Alberto Pasini (1826-1899) was an Italian painter recognized for Orientalist scenes and related urban landscapes. Born in Busseto, he trained at the Academy of Fine Art of Parma and in the ateliers of Pierre-Luc-Charles and Eugène Cicéri in Paris. He traveled and painted extensively throughout Turkey, Persia, Armenia, Egypt, Arabia, and Istanbul, among other locations. His work is represented in the permanent collections of such prestigious public institutions as the Museo Nacional Thyssen- Bornemisza, Madrid.

    The subject work is a landscape featuring an urban port with small fishing boats docked along the left side of a lightly rippled sea-green body of water; a row of architectural formations lines the distant horizon. The work is executed with loose, painterly brushwork in a restricted palette.

    As the signature at lower left was found to deviate slightly from known versions of the artist's signature, the work has been indicated to be attributed to Alberto Pasini. Further art historical research and/or the undertaking of a formal authentication procedure would be necessary to conclude authorship.

    For the purpose of the present assignment, the work has been valued in relation to past auction sale prices of comparable works by the hand of the artist.SA
